Recognition of Prior Learning

RPL is a form of assessment that acknowledges skills and knowledge gained through:
• Formal training conducted by industry or education, Work experience & Life experience
The main principle of RPL focuses on the outcomes of learning rather than when or where the learning occurred. Evidence of competency is collected by the student and submitted to the nominated assessor and assessment is made based on the required industry standard within the relevant training package unit of competency. If you believe this may apply to you for any part of the course, then you should request an application kit during the enrolment process.
